Fifty Dead Men Walking
One Week has been nominated for:

Adoration has been nominated for:

Victoria Day has been nominated for:
Best Original Screenplay - David Bezmozgis
I had expected David Bezmozgis to be nominated for his wonderful screenplay for Victoria Day, but it’s really too bad that the Canadian masterpiece One Week has not been nominated for Best Picture.
